There are plenty of places to get a quick bite in the West Village, but a lot of them involve eating pizza standing up or scooping hummus with whole wheat pita. That’s not the case at Berber Street Food, a counter-service spot serving mostly pan-African food, like sirloin skewers, shawarma-filled sandwiches, and a large plate with slow roasted lamb. Our favorite things are a couple of the street-food-influenced small plates - the vegetable curry empanadas and the black-eyed pea fritters, which taste like a mix between falafel and hush puppies. This lunch and dinner spot has about 10 seats, but keep it in mind for takeout as well.

Is complaining about Fashion Week your favorite activity during Fashion Week? Are you a young, vaguely employed man with long hair? Could you identify Marc Jacobs by his tattoos, should the opportunity present itself? If so, then you’ve probably been to Indochine.
Macao Trading Co.
"Look for the red lantern," instructs the Macao Trading Co. website. This is how you will know you have reached your destination - the Portuguese colony of Macao circa 1952, "a fugitive's heaven from which there is no turning back." Awesome. We're apparently having dinner at Universal Studios tonight.
While RedFarm doesn’t deliver the most authentic dim sum experience, it is delivering quality food.
